How to Capture All the Incentives You Are Due
From Pay for Performance Programs
to be Subject of New Audio Webcast
July 15, 2010 At 1:30 PM EDT

MANASQUAN, NJ --  July 6, 2010: The national emphasis on quality today is a significant trend that continues to grow. With that growth is the increase in the number of measures being used by different health plans that makes it difficult to adequately stay on top of what you need to know. This can result in physicians, practice groups, or physician organizations being inadvertently shortchanged when the incentives are awarded. 

The question is, are pay-for-performance program participants receiving all the financial rewards they are entitled to? 

Especially today with the rapid growth of P4P programs and so many members of independent practice associations and physician hospital organizations in many parts of the country participating in P4P programs, it's very important to know where all the dollars are. 

It's been estimated that IPAs may only be collecting 50 percent of their P4P incentive awards. 

That's why "How to Capture All the Incentives You Are Due from Pay for Performance Programs," a 60-minute audio webcast, has been organized by the team at Pay-for-Performance Reporter, for Thursday, July 15, 2010, at 1:30 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time.

Participants will learn the following significant factors to gain P4P financial incentives: Identifying the total amount of Pay for Performance; Picking the right initiatives; Getting the Data; Case History; Incentives vs Overhead; Quantifying Success, What Constitutes a Win?; and Painless and Transparent to Workflow.

The program presenters are: Ron Hooper, Chief Executive Officer and Director of YouMed; and Dr. David Feerst, MD, President of Northwest Suburban IPA and Founder and Co-Chair of YouMed.

Low-cost team training. All your team members can listen in. "Attend" this program right in your office and enjoy significant savings no travel time or hassle; no hotel expenses. The program will conclude with a live 'Open Mike' question and answer session, giving participants the opportunity to voice concerns and questions.
